There's only one way to improve a Viscount, and that's to travel in one. A lovely "relic" from an era when aircraft were designed by people who were part engineer and part artist and the sweep of a pencil was turned into metal to make some organic shape that could seldom if ever offend the eye.

To take photographs of them was to play a part in the original artwork, and angles such as this one as opposed to the tedious side-on shots is all part of the game.

The lighting is tricky, I can see that, but the exposure nicely brings out the lovely lines of this old dream of the artist we call the Viscount. Thank you for the image, and for not watermarking it.
